This calculation results in an INFINITE stream of 0.3's But more important is the fact that its a perfect Calculation! there are no numbers! or fractions of numbers left over! what I mean by this is! if it was possible to look at the last .3 it would onlly be .3 there are no other numbers Hiding! So now we want to find the true Value of INFINITE 0.9 Easy! N * 3 = 0.999999999......No numbers left over! Or as below! 0.3333333333333333333333333333333................. ...... + 0.3333333333333333333333333333333................. ...... + 0.3333333333333333333333333333333................. ...... --------------------------------------------------------------------- 0.9999999999999999999999999999999................. ...... = --------------------------------------------------------------------- A.R.B
